The biomedical research carried out in the Department of Medicine grows ever more dynamic and expansive. The consistently increasing funding we receive each year speaks to the breadth and scope of the research enterprise in our department. Our laboratories continue to be upgraded and facilities are state-of-the-art, including new laboratories established in the recently-launched Belfer Research Building. Led by principal investigator Dr. Julianne Imperato-McGinley, Weill Cornell Medicine was among the first groups of institutions nationwide to receive a $49 million NIH-funded Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA). Major collaborative research partnerships and joint research training programs continue to expand with our neighboring institutions, Rockefeller University, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) and the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS), as well as the Ithaca campus of Cornell University.

A number of our physician-scientists have received honorary awards in recognition of groundbreaking discoveries. Such discoveries emerge from arduous work at the bench and in clinical research with patients. Through our collective commitment to excellence in research, we continue to attract world-renowned faculty, educate tomorrow's physician-scientists, and provide our patients with the best that medicine has to offer.
